ASUS hasn't forgotten Transformer Prime owners - after rolling out Jelly Bean back in September, the company is pushing a small bug fixer over the air with version 10.4.2.17. The update actually began yesterday, but we waited a bit for the official changelog to come through - after all, what's the point of playing the guessing game if we can't add anything of value, right?

As I mentioned, the changes are pretty specific and far from critical, but it's better to see them and know what ASUS didn't do than run all over TF201's dark corners looking for something that isn't there.

Chances are if you're a Galaxy Nexus or Nexus 7 owner (or soon to be Nexus 4 / Nexus 10 owner), you probably have reason to head into the developer options menu once in a while. Or like me, just once ever to enable USB debugging. Regardless, if you go looking for these options in Android 4.2, you won't find them. That's because Google has - for whatever reason - hidden them from view in this latest update.

Nexus 7 owners, it's your turn. Earlier this evening, before many countries even had access to Nexus 4 or 10 orders, Google began pushing the 4.2 (JOP40C) update to the Takju Galaxy Nexus. After some patient waiting, it appears the Nexus 7 is now ready for an update as well. In case you don't feel like waiting on the OTA though, we've got the download link and some super-easy instructions for manually updating your favorite 7-inch slate.

We knew this would happen. As soon as Google discontinued the 8GB version of the Nexus 7 and dropped the price of the 16 to $199, there were slew of comments along the lines of "now I'll just wait for the 8GB closeout sales." Well, Staples is the first to step up to the plate with that.

Presumably until they're sold out, you can walk into a Staples retail location and get an 8GB Nexus 7 for just $160.

So, you want a Nexus 7. And you want it to have 32GB of storage. And you don't want to pay full price for it. Done, done, and done. For today only, you can get a 32GB Nexus 7 from eBay Daily Deal for a smokin' $229. That's $20 cheaper than in the Play Store. Not to mention the free shipping and no tax (for residents not in New Jersey, that is).

It always stings when you buy a device just before the price drops. If you happened to pick up a Nexus 7 directly from ASUS or Google, though, you may be in for some good news. Two separate partial refund systems are in place to compensate you. If you're in Europe and you purchased the slate directly from ASUS prior to October 29th, 2012, you can register for a €30 (or ₤25 for UK owners) voucher that's good for use in the company's online store.

A few weeks ago, I reviewed the Poetic Slimline Portfolio case for the Nexus 7, after buying it for my personal use and finding it to be a good choice with a great value proposition. After seeing the review, the folks at Poetic decided to send us some more, in the hopes that I'd give some of their other options for the Nexus 7 a good rundown. The whopping four cases they sent me are all based on the same design (a pouch and cover combo, with magnetic closures and wake/sleep functions), each with slight variations.

If you head over to ASUS's download page for the Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T), you can grab the newest firmware update for your Infinity - 10.4.4.20. The update is available for US, Japan, China, Taiwan, and Worldwide variants of the TF700T, so make sure you download the correct firmware. Some folks over at XDA have been playing with the update, but until now, a changelog has been elusive.

We happen to have the official changelog from ASUS, and this a pretty substantial bug-fix update that should alleviate some of the issues people have been experiencing with the device.

If you thought Google's official Ask Me Anything video was a good promo for the new Nexus family, wait till you see this. A design studio called Autofuss (based in San Francisco) has created their own promo video for the Nexus 4, 7, and 10, that does a great job of showing off the new line. Take a look:

Not only is the thirty-second spot a pixel-perfect promo in terms of style, polish, and overall concept, but it stays true to Google's own Nexus branding, art style, and features copy that feels right at home in a promo made for Google.

In the spirit of Halloween, let's give some stuff away! It's about treats after all - isn't it? And what better treat is there than free gadgets?

Since this is a Halloween giveaway, let's talk about the undead for a moment, shall we? In fact, let's get specific - let's talk about killing the undead with an assault vehicle made for mowing 'em down. Sound familiar? It should, because I'm talking about the newly released Tegra-exclusive title Zombie Driver.
